The SmartTOP retrofit Convertible Top add-on kit made by Mods4cars which is available for Audi A3 and Audi A4 Convertibles as well as Audi TT Roadster and VW Golf VI Convertible now comes in a new and improved design. Effective immediately these kits now contain modules with the new, custom designed Mods4cars product enclosure. The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller allows using the top with the console switch while driving and from afar with the original key fob remote.

Las Vegas, NV, December 20, 2014 --( Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars completely redesigned the look and feel of their SmartTOP Convertible Top add-on modules. They now come in a custom designed product enclosure manufactured exclusively for Mods4cars. Effective immediately, the modules for Audi A3 and A4 Convertibles as well as Audi TT Roadster and Volkswagen Golf VI Convertible ship with the new module enclosure. The smaller, slimmer shape of the module makes it easier to install it in tighter spaces in the car. Two built in LEDs show the status of the module and aid during installation.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers make using the top simpler and more comfortable. The retrofit kit made and offered by Mods4cars allows drivers to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38 mph). All that is needed is a quick, single touch of the switch to start full automatic operation. It is no longer necessary to hold it down for the entire time of the operation.

Additionally the top can be controlled from afar by using the original factory key fob remote. A key combination sets the top in motion. On hot days the top can be lowered while still approaching the car and at the first sign of rainfall the top can be closed quickly without the need to walk to the car.

Apart from these two main features all SmartTOP modules offer a host of bonus features, all of which are user configurable. The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote. On the Audi A3 and A4 all windows can be closed automatically with the switch in the driver’s door. VW Golf VI drivers can reverse the direction of the top switch to make it more intuitive. An extended mode can be activated which allows the engine to be started or stopped while the top continues to open or close. The entire module can be deactivated temporarily if needed, while retaining all other user settings.

Mods4cars continually works on improving its products. “In order to make this possible, all of our modules come equipped with a USB port that allows end users to flash firmware updates at home,” explains PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “The updates are available free of charge for our customers on our web site. This is unparalleled service in a product segment like ours,” Sven Tornow continues.

The Convertible Top kits come with plug-in-between wiring harnesses for simple and easy installation. This custom designed wire adapter connects the module safely and securely to the vehicle electronics. SmartTOP kits are available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top module for Audi A3 and A4 Convertibles as well as Audi TT Roadster and VW Golf Convertible is available for 249 Euros + tax.

About Mods4cars:

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
